Fix your problems.
Fix your friends.
Fix your behavior.
Fix the furnace.
Fix cookies. Oh please, fix cookies…
We are always dabbling in the art of fixing things. Sometimes we find success – the picture on the wall gets straightened; the words on the page get rearranged. But sometimes our attempts to fix result in disappointment. We can’t find a solution to the problem. We are left with feelings of dread, like when the furnace makes unusually loud rumblings…
Fixing is only as good as the fixer. Sometimes fixing comes easy and other times fixing is a challenge. I can fix a batch of cookies like a champ but I can’t fix a flat tire. I can fix grammatical errors in text with great ease but I can’t find financial errors without time, coffee, and a few choice words. For the record, my checkbook is rarely balanced… I have great trust in the bank.
But one thing I can do – no matter the problem before me, is to fix my eyes upon Jesus. Such a sweet reminder of the author of faith who will guide me in every step. He is truly the one who does the fixing.
What are you looking at today? Whatever it may be, can I encourage you to fix your eyes on Jesus first? He will guide your next steps. Sometimes cookies help too…
